The Boy and the Beast (12)

Japan/2017/114mins/12/subs Dir: Mamoru Hosoda With: Suzu Hirose, Haru Kurok, Mamoru Miyano

When Kyuta, a young orphan living on the streets of Shibuya, stumbles into a fantastic world of beasts, he's taken in by Kumatetsu, a gruff, rough-around-the-edges warrior beast who's been searching for the perfect apprentice. Despite their constant bickering, Kyuta and Kumatetsu begin training together and slowly form a bond as surrogate father and son. But when a deep darkness threatens to throw the human and beast worlds into chaos, the strong bond between this unlikely pair will be put to the ultimate test-a final showdown that will only be won if the two can finally work together using all of their combined strength and courage. The latest action-packed film from anime director-on-the-rise Mamoru Hosoda who brought us Wolf Children and Summer Wars.

"Kumatetsu, is simply one of the great cinematic creations — live-action or animation — of recent years.” "
Hollywood Reporter
"Confirms Mamoru Hosoda's reputation as one of the most interesting writer-directors working in Japanese animation"
